Artist Statement
Jana Romanova's personal projects are mainly focused on topics of collective identity and hesitations that arise between a desire to keep individuality and be accepted by society. She works with her subjects as collaborators using different methods of participatory art, and challenges herself with mind experiments, where she adopts various ideologies to question her own identity and explore different roles photography plays today.
